Mushroom-Sauced Pot Roast for the Crock Pot

This is one of my favorite crockpot roast recipes. The mushroom sauce turns a budget piece of meat into a masterpiece. Cooking times vary depending on the temperature setting you use.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Trim fat from meat, and if need be--trim the meat to fit into a 3 1/2 to 4-quart crock pot cooker.
  2. Combine potatoes, carrots, mushrooms, tarragon, and salt. Place the meat on top of the vegetables and pour the soup over the meat.
  3. Cover and cook on low for 10 to 12 hours or on high for 5 to 6 hours.

I used a boneless chuck roast and after the 12 hours on low the meat was melt in your mouth! I made mashed potatoes and a salad to go along with this. Thanks for a keeper Recipe Fairy ; )

I made this roast tonight and I was so disappointed. It was nowhere near as flavorful as I'd hoped. Everything was bland. I also hated the way the tarragon tasted in this dish. I'm sorry southern chef in LA, this one just wasn't for me.
